The Way I Watch TV

  •  I don’t channel surf. I don’t “see what’s on”. Maybe that’s also channel surfing.
  • There’s no channel or network that has a whole lot of something I like.
  • I don’t let the TV play if I’m paying attention to something else. It’s getting my full attention.
  • Therefore the show had better be worthy of my full attention. If it can’t hold my attention, then nopes.
  • I don’t torrent. Because reasons.
  • Sometimes I try recommendations from the streaming services based on what I’ve added to my list. Most of the time I don’t like them.
  • Sometimes I try recommendations from friends. Most of the time I don’t like these, either and then try not to get mad at my friends. They can’t help liking something so much they’re sure I’m gonna like it, too.
  • Pretty much, I just get certain shows. 
  • I no longer mess with watching one episode per week. I wait until the whole season is finished and then binge.
